Cagayan Governor Manuel Mamba on May 4 said he will make sure funds for the province’s sports development program will be put to good use.
The Cagayan politiko lamented that some people are misusing sports funds.
“It has always been a biggest challenge sa amin na yung pera para sa inyong mga atleta at para sa inyong mga programa sa sports ay nagagamit sa tama at walang nawawala because napakaimportante, nakita natin sa national sports program, pinagkakaperahan ito ng maraming tao. I will never allow this to happen in the province,” Mamba said.
He also called on local government officials and the private sector to help in the development of athletes in Cagayan.
“Sana makita nila what we are trying to do for the province. Kaming pulitiko may limit naman yung pag stay naming dito eh. Why don’t we take advantage of all of this, yung time na nandito tayo to accomplish something?” he said.
“If we are number one in sports, there is no reason why we cannot be number one in all aspects including governance, including livelihood, and including morality,” Mamba added.
